It certainly has been an emotional few days here- thank you to everyone for kind thoughts and words. Your prayers are much appreciated. And a busy few days too! That Guy and I have made arrangements to fly out to be in attendance for my mothers Celebration of Life service. Obviously we had been praying for her recovery so all arrangements have been made very last minute. But since I am going all the way there I thought it would be wise for me to bring all the Christmas gifts with me which I would have otherwise had to ship. Only problem? They were not all done.
This is actually a birthday gift I made for my nephew who will be turning 3 on New Years Eve- he's so awesome everyone lights fireworks on his birthday! :)
I decided to make him a felt fishing set.
I made him six magnetic fish, one magnetic fishing pole and a length of blue fabric for the water.
For this project I used:
- scarps of craft felt in a variety of colours - on hand
- this sites fish template
- 2 packages of round magnets - $1 each package = $2
- hot glue gun and sticks
- wooden dowel - on hand
- length of kitchen twine - on hand
- piece of blue fabric - on hand
- fabric paint - on hand
First I started by cutting out the fish template then using the template to cut the craft felt. Be sure to cut two of the body pieces. I did this by folding over my felt so I only had to make the cut once.
